I love Brussels. No seriously. I looooooove them. Raw. Roasted. Sautéed. It doesn’t matter. They’re super delicious. This preparation is quick and easy. It’s simple enough for a nice weeknight dinner. It’s also elegant enough to serve for a dinner party. Here’s the recipe:
Charred Brussels Sprout Salad with Grape Jelly Vinaigrette
3 cups of Brussels sprouts, cut in half

1. Sauté the Brussels in olive oil until they’re charred and brown.
2. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil while they’re cooking.
3. Remove and toss with grape jelly vinaigrette. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
